"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What kind of VLK install CD did you use?  You either user MAK which contacts Microsoft directly to activate or KMS which connects to your KMS server (corporate server most likely) which then activates it for you.  If you are unable to connect after certain amount of days your product is deactivated  and frees up the license.

Are you on the same network as the KMS?

check start > run > eventvwr.msc and see what events are logged for activation
